Every MCU Phase 5 Movie And Release Date Explained

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a rich and expansive universe that contains movies and TV shows telling an overarching story. The Universe has been a global success and is currently one of the biggest entertainment franchises. To manage its overall story, Marvel has grouped its movies into “phases,” which roughly translates to “eras” or “seasons” in common speak.

The first three “phases” of the MCU are collectively called “The Infinity Saga,” whose overarching plot lines revolved around the Infinity Stones (and Thanos’ quests in obtaining them). The next three phases (Phase Four to Phase Six) are known as “The Multiverse Saga,” where the established norm of parallel universes becomes a recurring trope. This time around, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is entering its fifth phase, containing the movies below. Here’s a list of every Phase 5 movie and their release dates.
